7:00am
me first ask you this hobby to take the risk is a the ukranian to fall. at this point. spare bag was the biggest lender in the private sector to ukraine as four billion dollars plus of loans to the various ukrainian borrowers. so far and as we speak only in so far. those loans are overwhelmingly current and in good shape. there's been no sign in the last week or two of any increase in defaults on those existing loans to a full range of ukrainian borrowers so far so good. so spare duncan least. bank that you are a board member it is no preparing food for a ukrainian to fool's day in the next few weeks o o o months. we may have seen that the chief executive officer of spare bag herman graph announced on wednesday last
7:01am
week that they would not make new loans in ukraine until the situation clarified they're watching it closely but meanwhile business has already been eight seems to be a normal shape and people are paying their loans on time so far. what you think the risk is of contagion from the ukrainian situation economically. we'll have to look at it in terms of what's going on at the grassroots ukrainian businessman at the same problems as is my math everywhere. if the paper suppliers have to pay your employees to give credit to your customers. if you can't pay your employees with them they don't work they do on the street mobs get worse and the bad feelings get worse so far there has not been problems of mass non payment of employees in the private
7:02am
sector problems have been in the government sector people are building one of the ethical issues palaces so they weren't being paid and walked off the job. the kind of thing can become the snowball but were worried about that you just mentioned this ukraine were to default on its debts if ukraine where to run out of money how much of it without the full full of channels the russian companies. people who have borne the ukrainian sovereign bonds which are that which is the debt that people are most afraid of seeing the default on our very wide range of borrowers and russia is not a major buyer covertly of ukrainian soccer moms to be one of many creditors would be hurt by ukrainian sovereign default. when we look at then at the lifeline to rush off to ukraine at
7:03am
the end of last year what you think that the probability is that that moscow will go through on that sits in a voice and reservations when it comes to paying out the launch is all about lifeline. there was a quid pro quo for that lifeline. in exchange for a lifeline and for reducing the cost of gas to russia sells ukraine or russia want to ukraine to extend the lease on russia's black sea fleet located in the crimea. in the celestial pole. so it was just not a pure economic or financial deal it was also a political deal. and those to the political side of it having them the black sea fleet stationed in crimea is still very much part of russia's military set up so that might be some give and take on both sides. how would
7:04am
you say that economic relations on between the two countries at this stage each book to me actually i don't like. well there's a lot of russian investment in ukraine russian steel companies russian engineering companies russian construction companies have been major investors in the country to the sense that any foreign power has been. and those relationships while they don't reduce great fortunes for the russian businessmen by and large they were are recently well. btw if you remember ukraine is a poor country. the per capita gdp of ukraine is about four thousand dollars compared to russia which is about fourteen thousand dollars for france which has forty thousand dollars so they doing the kind of business and people do. from abroad in a four country which is what ukraine still is. it
7:05am
shouldn't be. this is russia's launch economic role in ukraine cost of the thinking in moscow the russian government has made it quite clear that it doesn't like what's happening across the board to the above were rushed to help out number that's because of its economic interests in ukraine book books you'll sense when it comes to that. russia has a huge economic interest in ukraine ukraine's stands between russia and europe in europe as russia's big customer for gas so for the pipeline which transports russian gas across ukraine to europe is a major asset of great importance to the russians. that pipeline is currently owned by the ukrainians that the discussions in the past about privatizing the pipeline sale and lease back so that the russian shippers to have a better view of what's happening to
7:06am
the gas inside that pipeline russian companies are major investors in ukraine russia has every interest in keeping ukraine peaceful and solvent and together. ukrainian officials say that the county may need as much as thirty five billion dollars the sea and the next years well to survive who will come to its rescue when it comes to that kind of kind of catch. i've seen that number to market the thirty five billion dollars number as relates to the outstanding sovereign debt and debt obligations to ukrainian. in government employees. more often for more urgent one is making sure employees are getting their paychecks people do have to live from day to day insofar as sovereign debt is concerned. we've all seen from the european peoples the last couple of years but those near term maturity to
7:07am
stop or dad can be worked out can be rolled over can be extended with the agreement of lenders. these are the kinds of things that the imf is constituted to do the most urgent need is keeping the day today the economy going. russia is better positioned than anybody else better than the imf better than the brt because they are in daily contact with ukrainian economy. that's why peace and normal business conditions are so important to all parties here. just joking that the question on who is going to come to ukraine's a d d d thing that ukraine will have to choose between the west and russia at some point will it be able to balance the two. i think it's a dichotomy and i think sergei lavrov russia's
7:08am
extremely experienced and highly regarded foreign minister has said that this is not a zero sum game. not one of the other. it's both ukraine needs europe. as a trading partner as well as a political friend and ukraine is russia is no reason they cannot be on friendly terms with both assuming the russians and the europeans can agree that mr recently cannot agree sergei lavrov has worked closely with his opposite numbers. in the eu in poland and germany. in the united states. these foreign ministers can sit around a table as it did last week and cut a deal. make sure that russia and the others will sustain ukraine as a going country. we do not need a war in the middle of europe would be normal diplomatic relationships. this is not
7:09am
time for soldiers at the time for diplomats. we have seen some of the concerns though when it comes to tensions on the border between ukraine and russia it sounds as if you'll saying that perhaps at least from the russian perspective. i wish that we should be paying down those tensions. exactly but i think president putin has got to juggle two wings of opinion i was in russia all last week i speak mainly with bankers and businessmen they do not want war. we do not want to break up the ukraine they wanna continue normal business can see the ukrainian economy grow there is also a faction that would love to wave the flag that we've seen some of that already in the crimea. that is not the direction to go and the question is can president putin. keep a lid
7:10am
on those below to receive radicals and keep a normal business and no more diplomacy moving forward that's the challenge the spirit of sochi in which there were fifty billion dollar investment should prevail here. a spirit of the internationalism of friendship and understanding that's the hope that friends of ukraine and france and russia were thinking clearly half of the country today the thing about that president putin will be listening to them than all the other side of bed that you talked about that another idea. he has been helping with his silence. we haven't heard from president putin he has not been rattling sabers. he has not been shouting threats. he's been extremely silent night for the moment. i hope that his silence is a hopeful sign. he
7:11am
feels he can keep a lid on the motorists and give full support. sergei lavrov and diplomats at the normal business and banking relationships. russia has with ukraine. we should all pray for that outcome the spirit of sochi should prevail. we used to look for the european bank of reconstruction and development to a new responsible for countries in the former soviet union. what does ukraine me to do with we get back to the economy what is in ukraine need to do in order to get its economy on an even keel again. we sat there with poland has done with the czech republic this time. slovakia and that is too. normalize the economy reduce corruption. operate according to sound business and banking principles people thought that these countries couldn't do it most of them have ukraine is a lacquered ukraine is no
7:12am
built in obstacle to keep ukraine from doing that getting rid of the article which was a corrupt leader and corruption is now visible for all to see was the first step in the right direction so are you hopeful or are you pessimistic. there's no room for pessimists in a situation like this and definitely hopeful. i know a lot of ukrainians highly intelligent people while educated well aware of what they need to do to get the country off its knees and standing it's too high. anton on that note of optimism are going to wrap up this into the o want to thank you run all three men for taking the time to speak to staff that cost ninety outside world to be wrapping up that this program thank you for working the business into the health costs ninety f and
